Wood fence or vinyl fence?

Leave a comment

Are you planning to put up a fence in your yard and are not sure whether to go with wood or vinyl? First of all you need to decide the purpose of your fence. Is it being used to keep out people, to have a safe place for children and pets, or to add beauty to your yard. There are several types of fencing available today. Here are some of the advantages of wood and vinyl. Wood fence • It blends with the landscaping • It is more natural • It is easier to make yourself if you are handy and have the right tools • It is less expensive initially • It is biodegradable • It is easier to cut to unusual sizes or shapes Vinyl fence • It is easy to assemble • It is durable • It will not crack, rot, or mold • It is weather resistant • It may come with a warranty • It will not discolor with age • It is bug resistant • You can clean it easily • It is less expensive in the long run A good fence can help make your home and yard more attractive. You can do it yourself or hire a contractor. If you plan to live in the house for more than 15 years, vinyl fence is your best bet. If you plan to sell your home in less than 10 years, wood is a wiser choice. Whatever you choose, make sure to follow your local set backs and get a permit if it is needed.
